Tavares now has 1 NHL game under his belt,
Crosby has 4 seasons, 400pts, an Art Ross, a Hart, a Lester B. Pearson, and most importantly, a Stanley Cup under his.
Apples and Oranges if you ask us.
Quick recap of the game:
11:10 Crosby takes a long pass off of the boards in stride, uses his body to shield the puck from Brendan Witt, buries it. 38 more Sid.
8:32 Fedotenko thinks his skate’s untied, when he looks down to check, Brendan Witt crushes him.
Legal check, Fedotenko goes to the locker room.
McKee opts for a lengthier conversation.
It appears that McKee is given:
a fighting major, an instigator and a game misconduct for being the third man in.
Also, Malkin gets a roughing penalty.
12:51 Isles are on the powerball powerplay. Is it still called that? Probably. Everything’s whored out to ads. Tavares finds the puck and scores on the backhand. It’s his first goal in the NHL. Big whoop.
12:41 Mark Eaton from the blue line. He better quit scoring goals because we’re getting used to this. Crosby wins a faceoff, Letang moves the puck back to Eaton, his wrister goes through traffic and somehow Roloson, who’d been lights out up until then, lets it through. Gonchar’s contract negotiations take a serious hit.
Tied up again.
3:49 Fedotenko makes like Mike Massey and slides the puck across the fallen body of Rat-chin and off the skate of Bruno Gervais. 3-3.
Isles: Tavares gets the call, skates down the ice and shoots wide. Where are your slick moves John? No good. 1-0 Pens
Pens: Crosby makes like Mario and skates towards the net almost casually, then shows off his quick release and buries it five-hole.
- Tavares looked good.
- The Pens’ powerplay appears to have hit midseason form. 0-3
- Malkin needs a new RW.
- Jay Caufield still looks like the Frankenstein monster.
- What, exactly, does FSN pay Paul Alexander to do?
- We’re officially on EN’s blogroll. Thanks Seth.
